Linux kernel vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

-   Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
-   Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary

A security issue was fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

-   linux - Linux kernel
-   linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
-   linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
-   linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
-   linux-gke - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
-   linux-gkeop - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
-   linux-ibm - Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems

Details

William Liu and Jamie Hill-Daniel discovered that the file system
context functionality in the Linux kernel contained an integer underflow
vulnerability, leading to an out-of-bounds write. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-0185)
